Prince Spectrum Pro Pickleball Paddle

Includes Two FREE Fuse G1 Balls & Prince Hat ($16.65 Value)


The Spectrum Pro Paddle has a circular shape that creates an extra large sweet spot that will blow away "touch" players' expectations. This paddle has a very soft feel that can still smash winners with ease whenever you see an opening. A thick polymer core serves to increase its responsive nature while a slim edge guard allows for the maximum amount of surface area. This paddle defies the normal trade-offs you face in composite fiberglass paddles - it has an enormous sweet spot, and exceptional power attributes, making it equally appealing to players who want both a great defensive paddle and an offensive weapon.

The Spectrum Pro Paddle has a 5" long handle and can be ordered in two different weights and grip sizes in order to customize its features to best suit your needs. The broad 8-1/4" will offer plenty of room to return all manner of shots while keeping control over your volley's angle and positioning. The design uses a background composed of a combination honeycomb/jagged design overlaid by Prince's "p" logo.

The Spectrum Pro Paddle features a wonderful blend of touch and strength which will have you feeling more in control of your game than ever before. The Progressive Core technology is thicker than the industry standard polymer cores. It features a 9/16" thick core that provides a "linear progressive" feel. The more you power up your shots, the more of that power gets imparted to the ball. Normally with other fiberglass faced paddles this results in a concentrated "hot spot" in the middle of the face, but the Progressive Core" on the Prince, combined with its unique rounded shape that maximizes the sweet spot, gives you shot consistency with soft shots (like dinks), defensive volleys (where you need to take power out of a shot coming at you fast), and power put away shots. Our testers marveled at this paddle, noting it was one of the best paddles we've ever put through the test lab (see their comments below.)

Choose from Light (7.2-7.6 oz) or Standard (7.7-8.3 oz) weights, two grip sizes and four colors.

PickleballCentral Expert's Corner:
  • Reviews of the Prince Spectrum Pro Pickleball Paddle by Pickleball Central Staff:


  • "When I heard that Prince was introducing a paddle, I thought 'how is a tennis company going to do with creating a pickleball paddle?'. Well I got to test one, and I have to say that I was totally blown away with how good a paddle they produced! The round shaped head creates an enormous, super consistent sweet spot. To me playing at 5.0, I look for a paddle that allows me to play well defensively when I'm attacked with a hard volley or aggressive ground stroke, and the Prince paddle is one of the best control paddles I've ever picked up. To me it's a composite paddle with the touch and feel of graphite, with plenty of control plus a ton of power when you want to put a ball away. It's light weight, and so I feel like I can get fantastic touch on softer shots. The face has enough grit on it to give me excellent spin control. I think I am really going to like this thing!"

  • "The first thing you notice about the Prince Spectrum Pro is the shape of the grip, due to its thick core, the shape of the grip is a bit more squared up (vs oval or elongated rectangle), which I find to be a positive. I love that it comes is both a thin (4 1/8") and standard (4 3/8") circumference size. The shape makes it easy to maintain a feel for the proper angle of the paddle in your hand, minimizing off angle hits from rounder paddles. While I do think this is a power paddle because the sweet spot is larger, shots are more predictable and therefore ball control is enhanced on all shot types. This paddle feels lighter than it is and therefore I think the amount of power/pop can be surprising. We know weight affects the amount of power or soft touch a paddle will have and because this paddle has such a wide range of weight options one could easily go up or down in weight to get more or less power or control. As a Product Manager, I love it when a paddle company doesn't assume 'one size fits all', and this paddle has great options available for weight range and grip - let the customer pick what's best! In terms of ball feel and shot control, I think this is where the Spectrum shines. It flat out feels good. Initially I was hitting a lot of balls out the back because I was not anticipating how much pop the paddle has and was probably overswinging because it does feel lighter (not sure where the weight is centered but it feels like it may be a bit more handle biased). Once I played with it for 15 minutes or so I really started to get the feel of it and was able to put a lot of spin on the ball and still feel like I could control and place shots. Because of the weighting it also feels very quick and maneuverable and the wider face instilled confidence particularly as I was working on spinning serves, defending volleys, and cutting backhand returns. It has a wide consistent sweet spot that allowed for more creative and risky shots while maintaining consistency because I didn’t have to worry as much about hitting it right on center. Truly confidence inspiring. Because of these attributes, I really think this is a great paddle for players of all levels, so long as someone is looking for something to truly improve their game. Because of the larger face and large sweet spot this paddle plays great and is also quite forgiving. But when you see some of the pros (like Jennifer Lucore) using the paddle, you can tell this is a paddle you won't outgrow. "
  • Jimmy, Paddle Product Manager (3.5 Player)


  • "If you love the science of the pickleball paddle, the new Prince paddles are an inviting playground. The new rounded shape allows the energy to dispense throughout the paddle evenly, creating one of the largest sweet spots in pickleball. The paddle will also resonate with those who like a thicker paddle. The Spectrum has a 9/16” core which softens the play without compromising power. If you are not into the science, you will just enjoy the way the paddle plays. Great touch at the net is combined with enough power to get serves and returns to the back line. "

This paddle is not for me September 13, 2018
Reviewer: Ward H from COLUMBIA, MD United States  
The Spectrum Pro seems like a decent paddle. I liked the more rounder shape. I also like a paddle that is on the heavier side - the first one of these I got came in at the lowest side of the weight range at only 7.7oz which was much too light for me, so I sent it back and had Pickleball Central hand select a paddle that was on the heavier side of the range. I received an 8.3 oz paddle in return and liked the weight much more. However, I had also been testing a Selkirk AMPED S2 in the mean time. Once I received the new 8.3oz Spectrum I realized that I did not like the handle grip at all, esp compared to the S2. I really like the S2's short flared handle grip. The Spectrum grip was long and not flared at the ends and it just felt like I lacked control with it. So I returned it. I also tried the Selkirk AMPED Epic, but felt that the handle was just a bit too long (which is the only difference from the S2 BTW).

Reviewer: Revelin Lavie from Helena, MT United States  
I love this paddle.  I can loosen my grip, hit accurate soft shots, and still have the power I need.  Play and placement are easier. Thank you for your fine service every time we call!

Spectrum Pro Composite June 26, 2018
Reviewer: Mark Stolpman from Fergus Falls, MN United States  
I personally did not like the paddle.  I bought it due to the marketing description of having a new design with enlarged sweet spot.  I did not find this to be true.  It also did not have the pop of my other paddle. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thank you for your review of the Spectrum Pro Composite paddle. .  I’m sorry that the paddle did not work out for you. It is true that a composite paddle will not have as much “pop” as a graphite paddle I’m glad to see that you took advantage of our 30 day return/exchange policy and received a refund for your purchase.
Thanks again for your feedback,

Plenty of power with this paddle but not much for touch shots . I think the paint job could be better for the price .

Reviewer: Alan from Murfreesboro, TN United States  
I loved this paddle, but disliked the handle.  I choose to try the large handle and it was just a little too big for me.  I like a medium handle with an overwrap.  The small handle is just too small.  I choose the Poach Advantage over this paddle because of the handle.
